HARROW

Welcome to Harrow

Nestled in a valley beside the picturesque Glenelg River, historic Harrow lays claim to the title of Victoria’s oldest inland township.

EXPLORE

Be sure to allow time to visit the Johnny Mullagh Cricket Centre. This state of the art interpretative centre commemorates Australia’s first Aboriginal cricket team to tour England in 1868, and is a ‘must see’ for cricket enthusiasts and history buffs. For the motor enthusiasts, don't miss the Harrow Transport Museum.

A leisurely stroll along the well marked Glenelg River Walk provides you with the opportunity for fishing, birdwatching or just admiring the majestic Red Gums.

EXPERIENCE

Discover bygone motor vehicles at the Harrow Transport Museum or explore the old log jail and other buildings dating back to the 1840’s.

During the year you can join the local players at the ‘Harrow by Night’ Sound and Light Show, an interactive cabaret style performance that ‘brings Harrow’s history to life.

Join in with the festivities held during the March long weekend, there is plenty of action! The Annual Cricket Match celebrating the Aboriginal cricketers takes place on the Johnny Mullagh Oval. Watch the National Bush Billycart Championships, or design one of your own for your chance to win big prizes! You can also marvel at the skills of the shearers in the Quick Shears Competition.
Come and see pre 1975 motorbikes in the Classic Scramble MotoX in April. Come to Harrow; you will love it!
